Concerned That Your Kids Are Not Growing Taller? Bone Transformation in Chinese Medicine Shall Allow You to Reach a Supreme Height

       Dr. Hsu-Tung Hsieh from the Chinese Medicine Department of the Taipei City Hospital’s Renai Branch says that the low birth rate in our current society has made each child a precious gem in their families. All parents want their children to win at the start. In particular, height is a vital factor which may affect children’s future confidence, work abilities, and even in choosing partners. Hence the timing for bone transformation is important. The chances of bone transformation are slim if we initiate after the bones’ growth plates have fused.

       Dr. Hsu-Tung Hsieh recommended the top 3 secrets to growth: sleep early for adequate sleep, balance diet with low sugar and fat, as well as timely body recuperation. The reason for early sleep is that the growth hormone secreted after 10pm is 3 times higher than during waking hours. Sugar and fatty food will inhibit the secretion of growth factors. A combination of habit adjustment with Chinese Medicine recuperation for bone transformation shall provide a dual effect.

       Taipei City Hospital has different formulas for boys and girls. For the best outcomes, the boys focus on the Qi supplement (Bu Qi), with Sijunzi soup and the girls focus on blood supplement (Bu Sieh) with Siwu soup. The public should be cautious as there are many different bone transforming formulas being marketed, and ingesting non-prescription Chinese medicine may cause early sex maturity. It is best to receive prescriptions from qualified hospitals.
